Huntington School closed for years 10 and 12

Huntington School in York

Another York school has announced restrictions.

Huntington School says it can no longer “staff the full timetable and ensure the health and safety of the entire Year 7-13 school population”.

So it has decided to close the school for Years 10 and 12 only at the end of today (Tuesday 17 March), until further notice.

In a letter to parents deputy headteacher Matt Smith:

  • We aim to deliver the timetable in school as normal for all other groups – for Years 7, 8 , 9, 11 and 13.

    We will continue to update parents and carers as we receive the latest information and guidance. Please check the school website and your emails on a regular basis.

    As always, our overarching priority is to ensure that our students and staff stay safe. I very much recognise that these are exceptional times and I would like to thank you for your support, cooperation and understanding.
